Who? The Tropics

Is a business partner / boyfriend-girlfriend duo who were inspired to practice sustainable living after vacationing at a no electricity, ecofriendly tree hut made out of local wood in Tulum, Mexico.

What? swim trunks

that are each made out of 10-11 recycled plastic bottles. We see the bottles, we pick them up, we pack them and we ship them to be processed into the stretch polyester that makes our shorts.

When? Just launched

in July of 2017! It's been a long process and a lot of nights and weekends spent glued to the computer but we're stoked to finally be live and share our story with you.

Where? Based out of Miami

but we're open to visiting you. We've got big plans for The Tropics and will be traveling the world capturing content and meeting like-minded people while spreading sustainable awareness.

Why? Our oceans need us

to help bring awareness to the ongoing plastic and trash issues. Did you know that one million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans?
